Feds ID CA man's role in anti-Islam film..(Obama wants blasphemy laws enforced in US?)
http://m.yahoo.com/w/legobpengine/news/feds-id-california-mans-role-anti-islam-film-164554115.html?orig_host_hdr=news.yahoo.com&.intl=US&.lang=en-US ^ | 9/13/12

Attorney General Eric Holder said that Justice Department officials had opened a criminal investigation into the deaths of the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other diplomats killed during an attack on the American mission in Benghazi. It was not immediately clear whether authorities were focusing on the California filmmaker as part of that probe.

A federal law enforcement official said Thursday that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, was the man behind "Innocence of Muslims," a film denigrating Islam and the Prophet Muhammad that sparked protests earlier in the week in Egypt and Libya and now in Yemen. U.S. authorities are investigating whether the deaths of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Libya came during a terrorist attack.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation, said Nakoula was connected to the persona of Sam Bacile, a figure who initially claimed to be the writer and director of the film. But Bacile quickly turned out to a false identity and the Associated Press traced a cellphone number used by Bacile to a southern California house where Nakoula was found.

does not reveal his identity. He was quite honestly fairly shook up concerning the events and what is happening

This man is just a cheesy Hollywood film-maker. There are hundreds if not thousands like him.

He made a dumb movie; others performed assasinations.

There is absolutely no mystery here and NO moral equivalency even though they're now trying to make him some kind of scapegoat.

When Hussein ran, we investigated a PLUMBER who asked ONE question.

When ONE reporter questioned Hussein ONE time, they chased him from the presser all the way down to the Washington Monument.

How is this different?

OK. They solved the case in WORLD RECORD TIME. These guys must be geniuses.

Funny how everything else in front of the DOJ takes years to resolve, or even get documents on.

Oh well, they have a scapegoat to blame it all on.

"It was not immediately clear?"

Ah, the media. Forever fronting evil.

In my mind, there is a revolving squirrel cage at the bottom of hell, because even Satan can't figure out who should be at the bottom.

Lawyers, Media, Politicians, Bureaucrats, Public Educators, Bankers, Liberals, Leftists, RINOs, around and around and around it goes.

And that's just the religious people.

A DOJ which...

1. Considered it OK if armed men in combat boots and berets threatened voters on election day...

2. Smuggled 2,500 machine-guns to Mexican drug-dealers, then tried to set up the people they’d asked to help them in their plan (which killed 2 cops and 250 poor Mexicans)...

Would they do THIS? I think that’s obvious, and I think Holder’s DOJ is being fairly honest and consistent about their treachery.

I am shocked that the Obama administration is actually exposing this guy. He's running for his life (as well as running from the law).

The person who produced this film is disgusting. It is not immediately clear whether he is a Coptic Christian as he may have claimed. I am convinced that the Obama administration's only possible motives for revealing his identity are evil. It is inexcusable to violate the privacy of this person, except in a court of law, even if he is responsible for a phenomenally terrible movie that was used as an excuse for serious violence.

Why is the US using its resources to track down someone who broke no law?

It is no freaking business of the feds (or anyone else) who made that film. So long as it doesn’t called for armed insurrection or the death of someone it is 100% within the law.

so it’s probably best i don’t publish my multi-choice koran treatment webpage

read... delete... burn... pee.. puree ... all the normal options afforded the bible by american progressives

i wonder if i’ll still get that national art funding for my ‘72 hairy v-jaja’s covering mo-ham-med in a jar of pig-urine... wrapped in bacon’

i figured if they gave one out for the ‘abstract representation’ of the virgin Mary, then mine would be a shoe in for a grant and maybe a place in the NY metro museum of art

Looks like the government, this regime, the media are still sticking to their narrative even though it's been proven that this film had nothing to do with the Muslims going ApeCrap in the middle east.

There are now unconfirmed reports now from some talk show radio host that the person of interest involved in this Anti-Muslim film is actually a Egyptian, and with Egyptian money ( Foreign Aid money perhaps ? ).

The narrative that it's come Israeli guy in California is a lie, but, that won't stop this regime, and the media to perpetrate this to stoke up the flames among the Muslims in the middle east.

Islamic blasphemy laws in the US? Well I guess what the DOJ will do is classify it as hate speech. So anything said against Islam will bring the DOJ in.

Why do you say that?

How about because the movie is so poorly done that it cannot educate, inform, or even change attitudes. All it can do is cause boredom in decent people or violent anger in Muslims. Creating a movie for either purpose is worse than disappointing. Does anyone, even someone who agrees completely with its portrayal of Islam, think that even one viewer would take this film seriously as an educational tool? There are a lot of productive things that could be done to fight Islam's violent spread, including movies that could be made. Why did this person waste his time on such an inept movie?

"Why is the US using its resources to track down someone who broke no law?"

Why?
Because the Barack Hussein Obama regime is hoping that once they publicly identify the person who made the so-called movie, then muslims in the US will track the guy down and kill him. The Regime hopes that this will then assuage the tender, hurt feelings of all of all of those Arab/Muslim savages in Egypt and Libya and thus quiet the situation down.

Anybody but the Hussein Obama Regime to take the blame will do. The Regime will willfully endanger or cause the murder of anyone in order to cover up it's foreign policy ineptitude or its collusion in aiding the worldwide expansion of repressive totalitarian Islam.

I don't know about the claim of mohammed’s homosexuality in the film but surely they can't dispute the marriage to a 6 yr.old child who was consummated at the age of 9 . Right ???

I have already heard a claim that our ambassador was raped before he was murdered ,,, was that true ???

Or tie him up into the investigation and force him to be silent and not go on Fox to tell his story. What I’d like to know is who “marketed “ this film in Egypt. If it’s so offensive to Islam it shouldn’t have been shown in the first place. Right? Find out who it was and then we’ll start to find the truth. I suspect it has little to do with the film or Copts.

I’m not sure if he was raped, the Washington Yimes reported on it last night tho, they were monitoring news in Libya, and a newscast and paper reported it.

It has happened to other victims of the Islamists, even Lawrence of Arabia.
